Hachikō cut his paw pretty badly, so +Gamble Nelkin​ brought her doggy first aid kit over. Hopefully he won't need stitches — we really don't have time for this right now! [EDIT: never mind, going to the emergency room… ugh]

"Perhaps it was the spirit of the time and the place that affected me. But I assure you no occurrence of any of my other battlefields impressed me so keenly. I halted on my tour to gaze on the spectacle, and to reflect on its meaning.  //  This soldier, I realized, must have had friends at home and in his regiment; yet he lay there deserted by all except his dog. I looked on, unmoved, at battles which decided the future of nations. Tearless, I had given orders which brought death to thousands. Yet here I was stirred, profoundly stirred, stirred to tears. And by what? By the grief of one dog. I am certain that at the instant I felt more ready than at any other time to show mercy toward a supliant foeman. I could understand just then the tinge of mercy which led Achilles to yield the corpse of his enemy, Hector, to the weeping Priam." — Napoléon Bonaparte
